Religion Research & Reference Book of the Month, October 2011

Keeping with the theme of Religion and Science, our research & reference book of the month is The Routledge Companion to Religion and Science, edited by James W. Haag, Gregory R. Peterson and Michael L. Spezio. Read this article to learn more...

The field of religion and science is one of the most exciting and dynamic areas of research today. This companion brings together an outstanding team of scholars to explore the ways in which science intersects with the major religions of the world and religious naturalism. The collection provides an overview of the field and also indicates ways in which it is developing. Each topic is presented in a clear readable fashion, ideal for scholars but also useful for upper level undergraduates.

‘This volume is carefully designed and the articles have been imaginatively selected and commissioned. It is especially appealing for people interested in moving beyond the (perhaps tired) categories and debates that dominate extant reference works. Each group of essays contains several that move beyond the dominant framework and push into non-western traditions and even non-religious movements. This is a genuinely useful reference work that could easily serve as a key text in a class on science-religion at the advanced undergraduate college level and even in graduate schools.’ - Wesley J. Wildman, Boston University, USA

This book is part of the Routledge Religion Companions series.
